Move over Whistler's mother, there's a new art mom in town. Though No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man has closed at the Renwick and is currently on the road, we thought this footage of Tyler Fuqua and his mom was perfect for this weekend. Happy Mother's Day to  all the art moms, dance moms, stage moms, and just regular mom moms.

You can experience No Spectators at the Cincinnati Art Museum now through September 2, 2019. Following Cincinnati, the exhibition will be on view at the Oakland Museum of California from October 12, 2019 through February 16, 2020.
